Building

  • Clone this git repository
  • Download Apples Dictionary Development Kit (The packages is called "Auxiliary Tools for Xcode")
  • Copy the "Dictionary Development Kit" somewhere and adjust the Makefile accordingly
  • make
  • Optional make validate (you need to install jing for that)
  • make install

Caveats

  • Only the first entry is displayed in pop-up mode instead of all (e.g. "boken" shows only "beech") but you will see all of them in dictionary.app.

Thanks to

Philipp Brauner who build an English <-> German dictionary which I have used now for a couple of years. His plugin gave me the idea to build an English <-> Swedish one. You can find his English <-> German one here.
